When:
September 5-September 29, 2017

This year, we have a goal to raise $12,000! If you break that down, each East student would only have to raise around $30. Of course we encourage each family to raise as much as they can to support East PTO! All funds go directly back to our teachers and kids! Besides focusing on building classroom libraries and purchasing a digital recording device for our school, any extra funds we can raise will go into our Teacher Academic Request Fund which helps each classroom and reaches every student

Spirit Night is an evening when East is featured at one of our Ankeny Hawk basketball games! It gives elementary students a peek into what it will be like in a few years and allows them to feel like they are definitely part of the larger Hawk Family! The atmosphere is fun, there are opportunities to win prizes and meet some of our High School Students! Free tickets and a free popcorn coupon are provided for by the PTO.
